I’m sorry, did you just know by looking at her that she was destined to be a stripper?

Jamariauna (Dongle Mailbag)

by Lemonjello Redenbacher on March 26, 2015

I used to be a teaching assistant. One time, while going over the class list for the upcoming school year, I found this doozy: Jamariauna. Is it just me, or does it look like somebody just rearranged the letters in “marijuana”? There was also a Chardonnay on the list that year. Classy!

Mignon (Dongle Mailbag)

by Lemonjello Redenbacher on March 24, 2015

This is stupid on several levels. It apparently means “cute” in French, and who would name their kid Cute? Worse still, it’s used for girls by American parents, oblivious of the fact that it’s the masculine form of the word in French. Finally, the poor kids tagged with this idiotic (non)name have to go through life suffering steak jokes.


Sleeper (Dongle Mailbag)

March 23, 2015

A teacher at my high school named her son this. Middle name was Westley (after The Princess Bride) and Sleeper was someone’s grandma’s surname, so we all kind of assumed he’d go by Wes. Nope. Parents insisted he go by Sleeper. Wow.

I hope this kid gets good grades. This is setting him up for a minimum wage job or at least a lot of rejected resumes thanks to his mother.

I’ve heard this name on several occasions, and each time I just wonder why?  How did this come about?  At what point did someone just get completely stumped on what to name their kid, and then settle on an insect that keeps you awake at night?

Back to the Greek Gods now, are we?  This is where I usually research the mythological character and present a list of atrocities that he or she has been involved with.  But you know what?  I’m not gonna do that this time because, well, it doesn’t really matter when you’re naming your kid fucking AGAMEMNON!

So, my brother is considering giving this name to his baby if it’s a girl. I wish I was kidding. His reasoning is “it’s like the Sublime song.” What. The. Hell. Hopefully I can talk some sense into him before the baby comes. Hmmmm….maybe inform him that Santeria is a religion known for practicing animal […]

My child’s classmate name is Indaeyanna, I don’t know how their parents came up with that ridiculous name I’m guessing their either big fans of the Raiders of the Lost Ark, or are from the land of the Hoosiers.  Either way – their kid is but a toy to them, apparently.
